downloads into my paintnet
An animation frame (The numbered thumbnails under the Animation tab) in IR is going to display whatever layers are marked visible (the eye icon under the Layers tab) for that specific/unique frame.
Layer order matters for each frame, just like it does for a single image. Just make your text the top layer in the order. Turn visibility on for the animation frames you want it to display and toggle visibility off for the animation frames you don't want it to display.
Also remember, layer position is specific/unique to each animation frame just like layer visibility. So if you wanted your text to move across the screen, you only need one layer and you just change the layer position through a series of animation frames.
Let me know if you need more help...
this is for ImageReady (I have CS2)... I sort of saw what you were talking about, but I feel like I'm doing something wrong because it's not working like I want it to...
it seems to be on one or all frames.
